Classical Greco-Roman Sculptures Are Transformed Into Action Figures
Pre-dating your favorite toy by 500 years.
Classical Greco-Roman art meets Japanese attention to detail in The Table Museum‘s limited edition 6” action figures made of flexible plastic. The Japanese company creates figma figures based on famous works of art in incredibly accurate proportions, and their latest series is modeled after the Renaissance’s most renowned sculptures. Michelangelo’s David, Alexandros of Antioch’s Venus de Milo and Auguste Rodin’s The Thinker come to life with their own fully-movable action figures equipped with movable body parts, including arms, legs, torsos and even eyeballs. Venus finally gets her own pair of arms with removable limbs, while The Thinker is offered in two versions that resemble a white marble version as well as the original green-tinged bronze.
The David figure is now available for pre-order online for ¥4,800 (approx. $40 USD) with shipping commencing May 2016.
